Title: Agricultural Tractor Fuel Consumption Estimation By Computer Programming
Author: Tarig Hassab Allah, Talha
Abstract: A computer model was developed to estimate fuel consumption rate in liter per hour, for tractor only and tractor with implement under different soil conditions The program enables the user to insert the input data through the screen , and obtain the output easily The validity of the model was tested using data from private agricultural company in sudan , for two types of heavy disc harrow (AH280,BH360), (H56,CH65C) with challerger tractors, seeder, and ridger.it was also tested by data form Sennar center for agricultural services using heavy disc harrow + 4WD tractor . The sensitivity analysis showed that the change in any input parameter eg., Speed, unit draft, engine power ,soil transmission coefficient and soil conditions affected the fuel consumption rate estimation. Accordingly, the computer program run and performed very well in estimating fuel consumption for proper machinery performance. This model can be used as a good help to the farm in machinery management and decision making
